In Ghana, the Ghana Health Service announced that from January 2021, they will make the COVID-19 vaccination compulsory for some citizens in the west African country.

Some of the citizens include security officers, health workers, government workers, commercial bus drivers, Staff and students in primary, secondary and tertiary schools will get a mandatory vaccination.

The Director-General of Ghana’s Health Service (GHS), Patrick Kuma Aboagye, said that the Minister will set the effective date for the vaccination in January.

However, the mandatory vaccination will not affect only one section of the public. The government will target public places where the masses usually gather, like restaurants, beaches, nightclubs, government offices, stadiums, and hospitals.
